Ashley Monroe has joined Sheltered Music through an exclusive publishing deal.
“I am so excited about joining the Sheltered music family,” Monroe says. “Not only do I get to be on the same roster as some of my biggest songwriting heroes (Marty Stuart, Rodney Crowell, Emmylou Harris — I mean come on!), but I feel equally supported and empowered in exploring new collaborations outside of the Nashville norm.”
Monroe has received three separate Grammy nominations—one as a solo artist, one as member of the group Pistol Annies and one as a featured performer alongside Blake Shelton. She has also written No. 1 songs for megastars Miranda Lambert (“Heart Like Mine”) and Jason Aldean (“The Truth”) and has had her songs recorded by many artists such as Carrie Underwood, Brendan Benson, Guy Clark, Vince Gill, Dwight Yoakam, Caitlyn Smith and Morgan Wade.
“Ashley just has a passion for music that moves the soul first and foremost, which is what makes her such a versatile writer with songs that go beyond the country genre,” says Darrell Franklin, Sheltered Music’s Senior Vice President. “The heart that you feel in her songwriting mixed with the pure authentic tone and emotion in her voice have made her one of Nashville’s one-of-a-kind treasures. I’m honored for us at Sheltered Music to have the opportunity to represent her music.”
“I’m grateful to Darrell, Lance [Freed] and the Sheltered team for being so willing and eager to champion this next creative chapter of my career, and can’t wait to see all that we accomplish together,” Monroe says.
Monroe’s most recent solo album, Rosegold, was an exploration into electronic pop and she is currently working on a sixth studio album due to be released early next year.
